School of Nursing recognizes advocate, former deans, directors in new Hall of Fame

The Clemson University School of Nursing recently honored eight individuals who have been champions for the program through the years since the school first began accepting students in 1968.

The school has established a Hall of Fame, and the first honorees inducted earlier in November included the former deans and directors of the program as well as a nursing advocate who chairs the Nursing Community Advisory Board. The Hall of Fame inductees’ names will be included on a memorial in Edwards Hall. School of Nursing Director Kathleen Valentine said these individuals have helped shape the School of Nursing into what it is today.

“In the words of former President John F. Kennedy, ‘We celebrate the past to awaken the future.’ We are doing this by recognizing our distinctive nursing leaders,” Valentine said. “We are recognized today as a National Center of Excellence because of the foundation these leaders built and their enduring legacy.” Read about the inaugural Hall of Fame inductees
